Grow Plastic Posies

If anyone can make plastics bags come up practically smelling—or at least looking— like peonies, it'd be green DIY guru Danny Seo. And to top it off, he makes it look so gosh-darn easy to do.

Before you send any vagrant plastic bags you've accumulated off to be recycled, you can glean some decorative use out of them. First, scrunch up a particularly colorful bag lengthwise into a long strip, and then fold that strip in half lengthwise twice. Secure the middle with a piece of tape or rubber band. Finally, use a sharp pair of scissors to cut a 1/2-inch piece off each end, then fluff out and display your new posy in an interesting container. ::Country Home
